The reason this happened was because you was on 7.3x of the AmazonOS, you needed to flash the 7.23 bootloader first before installing the second bootloader. Only a factory cable and the restore tool will save you now.

I did the same thing and the fast boot cable saved me. Good investment.

Also I suggest using hashcodes method rather than using fireflash to install TWRP and cm 10.1. It may look complicated but I've used his method on 3 kindles successfully and I'm a bit of a noob Just make sure you open the command window from the folder in which you saved the files - shift +right click mouse >open command window here. Sorry if you already know this. It just took me ages to figure that out lol! The link is here:

Actually, I've used the FireFlash method twice now on my Kindle Fire HD, and it's worked flawlessly both times, and takes less than five minutes to complete. But hey, whatever works.
